471 Rangers-Panthers in review

Happy Veterans Day. Thoughts: 1) J.T. Miller had jump right from his first shift. That was a pretty cool play on the 1-0 goal. Ryan McDonagh just grows every day in the offensive zone, and Chris Kreider is making plays he didn’t even make in that playoff coming-out party (I…

429 It’s Go Time! … Panthers at Rangers

Game 17. Panthers at Rangers. Panthers with a new coaching staff (0-1) have lost eight in a row and are 3-10-4 (but not the worst team in the East). The 8-8 Rangers have won two in a row, five of six, and six of eight. They have allowed two…

514 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) What a difference, or a slim difference, between winning and losing. Henrik Lundqvist made some huge saves on the early Pittsburgh power play, got help from a post, got Ryan Callahan to sweep one off the goal line for him, made another great save nine seconds after Brian…

1052 It’s Go Time! … Penguins at Rangers

Game 15. Penguins at Rangers. First of all, congrats to our second ticket contest winner, What the HECK, who was also our first ticket contest winner, both times correctly picking a 2-1 Rangers loss. Ya boys finish a four-game homestand with the first meeting of the season against the NBC…

441 Rangers-Ducks in review

Click here for my story on the game, from The Journal News and lohud.com. Thoughts: 1) I’m not going to try to convince anybody that the Rangers were or weren’t that bad, simply because it doesn’t matter. Even if they played great, you can’t make plays like they made in…

242 Rangers-Hurricanes in review

Thoughts: 1) A lot of guys did a lot of work on Derek Stepan’s goals — and I’m certainly not marginalizing his part in each of them —  especially Chris Kreider battling in front to keep the puck alive on the PPG and to get it back on the second.…

315 Rangers-Baby Buffaloes in review

Thoughts: 1) Yeah, so they beat a bad team. That was a popular theme last night. But those are games you need to win, and earlier the Rangers weren’t winning them, so stop whining, take the win, move on. The Rangers played well. Could they have scored more? Yeah. Did…

317 It’s Go Time! … Baby Buffaloes at Rangers

Game 12. Baby Buffaloes at Rangers. Happy Halloween! The Empire State Building is lit in orange tonight … but this time I don’t think it’s for Mr. Snider’s Flyers. Hard to believe more than an eighth of the season is gone already. Ya boys have won two of three. They…

409 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Islanders

Game 11. Rangers at Islanders. Right back to the road again. Nine of the first 10. Then it’s a four-game homestand starting on Halloween against the Buffalo Baby Buffaloes. Carl Hagelin makes his season debut, coming off LTIR after summer shoulder surgery. Cam Talbot starts in goal after Henrik Lundqvist…

291 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Alain Vigneault’s post-game press conference video is up above. For boxscore, click here. Thoughts: 1) OK, I know I sometimes get annoyed when you guys complain about the officials. But last night, if you didn’t complain about the officials I would suggest getting your pulse checked. I don’t believe that…

505 It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 10. Canadiens at Rangers. Finally, a home game! After 15 in a row on the road. The renovated arena opens to a team that desperately needs to string together some good performances. Alain Vigneault, after six preseason and nine regular-season games on the road, makes his home debut as…

285 Rangers-Red Wings in review

Thoughts: 1) I really would have felt sorry for the Rangers if they had lost this game and had to go home to what is supposed to be a celebration of the renovated arena and all, only to be greeted by an angry home crowd. 2) I also don’t believe,…

391 It’s Go Time! … Rangers at Red Wings

Game 9. Rangers at Red Wings. Finally, and end to this torturous nine-game road journey to start the season (15 counting preseason). Whether it ends with a win, loss or Bettman Bonus Point it’ll be good news for the Rangers that it’s over. Cam Talbot starts in goal again. Henrik…

349 Trade everybody!

Hey, I was busy at “the other job” yesterday but I spent a bunch of time here reading the comments, and especially enjoyed some of those about trading pretty much everybody because of a 2-5 start. Never mind that a lot of the excuses are fairly legit: The nonsensical preseason…
